PPRuNe Forums Thread Wiki: Which Aerodrome Mk III
Please read: This is a community-maintained wiki post containing the most important information from this thread. You may edit the Wiki once you have been a member for 90 days and have made 90 posts.

Here is a read only link to the Aerodrome Database - WhichAerodrome.xlsx. Up to date as of 1/1/2019

Here are some "rules" for Which Aerodrome. These are based upon the original suggestions from the very first thread, and have a few additions. Also please be patient as when you are active others may be asleep.
  • A historic picture of an aerodrome will be posted. Newer pictures are allowed but the theme here is to compare/contrast old with new as well as identifying aerodromes which no longer exist.
  • The person who correctly identifies it will be declared the 'winner' by the original poster.
  • That winner shall either post another challenge or declare the floor open. Anyone may then post the next challenge.
  • If the winner of the challenge does not respond to the notification of their success within 48 hours, an Open house can be declared when there is consensus between multiple other posters which are on line.
  • When the poster of a challenge does not respond within 48 hours of a posted answer, this poster can be declared winner if the answer is considered correct in a consensus of multiple other posters.
  • If Open House is declared, regular posters should not jump in immediately, but time should be given for those who are not great at naming the correct location as they may have some good images.
  • There will only be one challenge running at a time.
  • Try to use elderly photos and not Google Earth pics
  • Try to post images that are not already present on internet, as Google Image Search will find them if they are.
  • Personal photos are acceptable as they show the aerodrome as it is now.
  • When confirming the correct location, the location and winner should be stated to negate any deletion of posts.
  • Please don't delete your posts, let everyone see your successes, failures and challenges.

Anyone can edit it so long as they have been here for 90 days with 90 posts. Let's get consensus before changing and not go crazy Thanks to Self Loading Bear for suggesting that we use a wiki.

I don't know about a German aircraft, but there is a P-39 partially obscured by the Spitfire's nose.

The furthest wing from the camera has what looks like a white cross. That could be the wing of the P-38 though.

Ripton has it with LaGuardia. But it is the main terminal, not the Marine Air terminal Over to you.

By they way, I see a P-40, P-39 and P-38 in the picture with the Hurricane and Spitfire.

Turbinlite Havoc - Boscombe Down trials perhaps.

On second thoughts, how about HMS Tern - RNAS Twatt - in the Orkneys!

Yes, spot on with Tern/Twatt. That didn't take long.

It's all yours.

I did have to watch my spelling there! Recognised the Turbinlite straight away, but only after a bit more investigation realised the serials were Navy not RAF. Never knew the FAA had them on their inventory. An interesting challenge, - sorry to cut it so short.

Unfortunately nothing immediate to hand, so OH

Apparently, 771 Squadron had them in 43-43 for use on radar calibration and target simulation for Home Fleet units preparing to deploy to the pacific. I guess it was after they'd been become obsolete in the night fighter role.

A starting guess at 'this,' how about USA, North West, possibly Alaska?

I think you'll find the Connie is an EC-121/Warning Star. As to the location -?
